6:43 am
studies, just a few days ago, adding a pay-to-use option has been unpopular with some supervisors and drivers who said they're concerned about creating traffic lanes that are only used by people who can afford to pay those tolls, but the studies also suggested carpool lanes only might actually cause more congestion. now as we come back live, they will have to come up with some solutions no doubt, because it is estimated that over the next 11-plus years, there will be an additional 100,000-plus vehicles on these two highways between the city and the south bay. we're live in san francisco, thom jensen, "today in the bay." >> interesting to follow, thanks, thom. >> 6:44. northern california deputies mourning one of their own last killed last night in the line of duty. the deputy died when his car struck a utility pole. he was on his way to assist in a
